Hello Coffee...

Good morning crafty friends.  There's nothing better than a hot cup of coffee other than a hot cup of coffee shared with a friend.   Today's card is all about both!


Here's a snapshot of the products I used today:

I started by creating an A2 sized top folding card base using 110lb Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock.  This is such a nice heavy cardstock, just perfect for making card bases and the surface is so smooth, making ink blending easy and crisp.  I stenciled on some wide stripes using black ink and added a strip of CCS Silver Glitter Paper using Score Tape Double Sided Adhesive.  Be sure to check out the sale this month on all silver and gold cardstock.
I cut the coffee cups out of Pop Tones Pink Lemonade cardstock and blended a bit of distress ink to the bottom of the cups, giving the cups some interest and depth.

I used Brown Basis Cardstock for the coffee and chocolate and 80lb. Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock for the cream and assembled them using Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue .  Yum!  Don't these look tasty?

I stamped a simple sentiment so this card could be used for just about any occasion.
Since Gold and Silver cardstocks are on sale for the entire month of July, I made another card just like this, changing up the colors just a bit.

The cups on this card remind me of vintage jadeite.  I used Limeade Pop Tones and CCS Gold Glitter Paper.  

Don't forget to include a coordinating Pop Tones Envelope!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
